We have been discussing how to keep ourselves physically and spiritually safe from harm during paranormal investigations over the last few days. We all try to do what we can to keep ourself and our team safe, but how many of us actually think about the client? There have been accounts of teams, new and well established, that have gone into a residential investigation with the wrong frame of mind or investigative tactics and actually made the home worse for their owners I live in. A good friend of mine explained something to me a good while ago that has stuck with me and fits really well when going into investigations. He stated, “When going into a new place to investigate, look at it the same as you would going into a persons house you have just met. You’re not going to just walk in and start shouting and demanding things, your more than likely going to be very respectful. Talk to them as you would a new friend and you’ll be doing two things at once. One, you’ll be opening a healthy line of communication and two, you won’t be stirring up things and making the atmosphere worse for your client.” The things we say and do can and will have an impact on the location after you leave.
I know some would like to believe that have to provoke an entity to get results, but what are they really doing? Whether it is true or not, I like to believe you get what you give. If you give out negative vibes etc., that’s what you’re
going to get. With that being said, what are some do’s and don’ts that you recommend for teams doing home investigations to help keep their client safe? It doesn’t matter if you are a new team or an established team we ALL have something to contribute.
